Clover Cut-Out Sandwiches

I actually had the idea for these sandwiches before the Clover Cut-Out Cupcakes that I shared yesterday.  These might not be quite as tempting as a cupcake, but they're still a lot of fun, a lot healthier, and unlike so many St. Patrick's Day goodies... there is no artificial food coloring. :)

All you need is a small heart-shaped cookie cutter, and sandwich fixings for a sandwich that includes lettuce.  We love tuna fish sandwiches around here.

Cut three hearts out of your bread to look like a clover.  Then cut a stem out using a knife.

Build your sandwich...in our case tuna fish and then romaine lettuce.

 And you're done.

Serve with apples or other green goodness...

And if you want to add some sugar and food coloring to your celebration, you can do the same thing with a cupcake...

Please show my sponsors some love...
